With two rocking editions of ReConnect in the books, Beatport is looking to host their first genre-specific show with Beatport ReConnect Drum & Bass!
The past two months have been filled with plenty of turbulence as the entire world grapples with the coronavirus pandemic. But one thing that has kept dance music lovers grounded during these unprecedented times is the large number of livestreams that have popped up on platforms like Twitch and YouTube. One of the brands who has truly made an impact is Beatport with the stacked lineups for their ReConnect series, and now they’re back for another round with Beatport ReConnect Drum & Bass.
Set to take place on Saturday, May 2 at 6AM PDT, Beatport is changing course for this edition of ReConnect and solely focusing on the sound of DnB. And what better way to mark the first edition in their exploration of specific genres than with a lineup that’s brimming with talents like Black Sun Empire and Noisia. They’ll be joined by other artists including Reid Speed, Metrik, Benny L, and others over the course of the 15-hour broadcast.
The previous editions have raised $300,000 for AFEM (Association for Electronic Music) and COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for WHO, with donations coming from over 6,500 people around the world. Beatport will be raising funds again during the broadcast and more details on how you can give back are soon to come.
RSVP to their event on Facebook and stay tuned for the schedule that’s still to come to find out when your favorite artist is playing. Don’t forget to check out the full lineup below and let us know where you’ll be tuning in from in the comments!
